Return to the Seinfeld of comedy podcasts as Luke Burbank and Jen Andrews 
recount the major events in their lives and fuss over the latest national and world 
events. What do you do when your email address has been leaked to the wrong 
people? And what if restaurants don't serve enough crackers with your platter of 
assorted cheeses and dips? These treacherous issues and more stoke the fires of 
Too Beautiful to Live. 

In this recap of 201 1 's third quarter, Luke and Jen skeptically examine the New 
York Times' claim that watches have become cool again. Luke enjoyed a frenzied 
weekend while Jen's in-laws revealed her email address to people she'd rather not 
be in contact with. North Korea kidnapped a stamp collector and forced him to 
write a pro-People's Democratic Republic editorial of questionable quality, Luke 
goes on vacation and gains over ten pounds during the proceedings, and The 
Mummy demands that a Colorado mountain be named after John Denver.

Luke Burbank 

Burbank began his career in radio by pinch hitting across a variety of shows and 
genres, working either as a producer or as on-air talent. His work touched a 
number of shows, including The Conversation, Rewind, and Day to Day. He later 
became a reporter for NPR before starring as a regular panelist on the comedy 
show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! After a stint on The Bryant Park Project Burbank 
returned to Seattle to begin work on Too Beautiful to Live. 

Jen Andrews 

Jen Andrews served as producer for a variety of shows at KIRO before becoming 
executive producer of Too Beautiful to Live. The show marked the reunion of 
Burbank and Andrews, who had known each other since childhood. Andrews left 
the show for a time after its cancellation from radio and subsequent transition to 
the podcast format, but soon after rejoined Burbank as he broadcast from his 
home, "Burbank Studios."
